GMB Birmingham And West Midlands Region Team Up Midland Heart To Support Birmingham Homeless Project At Christmas

The Albert Street Project will be giving out blankets and clothing kindly donated by GMB and Midland Heart.

GMB Birmingham and West Midlands Region has teamed up with Property Care, the repairs arm of leading housing, care and support provider Midland Heart, to donate clothing and blankets to support a homeless charity in Birmingham this Christmas.

 The Albert Street Project meets every Wednesday on Albert Street in Birmingham. For more information or to make a donation visit their website: www.albertstreetpro.co.uk

Stuart Harrison, GMB Regional Organiser, said “This time of the year makes you reflect on your own circumstances but also makes you grateful for what we take for granted, working with Property Care in partnership has helped provide some support to the charity which is very rewarding.

The Albert Street Project meet once a week to distribute food and clothing to those who are sleeping rough, whatever the weather. This week they will be giving out blankets and clothing kindly donated by GMB and Midland Heart.”

 Greg Lakin, Head of Property Care at Midland Heart, said“Our Property Care teams are out and about every day in the Birmingham area and can see the challenges some people face throughout the year but especially in the winter months. This was an opportunity for us and our suppliers to get involved so we can continue to support the homeless in Birmingham.”
